Can't really answer the last part of your question about the 84 tour but thanks for the recommendation, I am going to check it out later. I am not a huge 80's-90's dead fan but I am always up to listen to a good show referred by some of the posters here! Thanks wisdead!

Si Si. It truly is one of my favorites (and im really a 72-73 kinda guy). The whole first set is excellent. Sound quality isnt great, the LLR is uber quiet so typically needs to be at full volume. But everything is great, not to mention the brent vocal jam durin minglewood. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

It's funny I am much the same except I prefer 69-72 as my favorite period and I have been listening to the whole 71 and 72 tour so far (currently ripping through the Strand shows on the last leg of the Europe 72 tour) I think this will give me a nice break to listen to another era, so I can go back and finish up the summer and fall tours of 72 (driving with the family down to fla in a few weeks, so I have a ton of time, my wife is going to love it!)

I love it heh. I am doing something similar, have been listening to the sept. 72 shows. Havent gotten too far, been busy with school. But have been taking some good notes. Mostly im doing it to find the gems from that month. Are you doing something similar? I would like to get your input. Maybe bounce back some thoughts

Do you prefer fall 72 or europe 72? i love the fall personally.

I hope you enjoy the 84 show. Again, it really is a gem

You know I really love the Europe run but some of those Sept 72 shows are amazing especially the Stanley Theater shows, but as a whole the Europe run is a little better, the energy seems to be there every night and it is really Pig's last run where he seemed to put some great stuff together there, but it is only better than the fall by a small margin in my opinion, to me the Europe run is in the same category as the Fillmore 71 run and the December 71 run. Those are my personal faves from 71. This is only one man's opinion, I am sure Mr. Tell and Mr. Hucker would have some great insight to your question as well! I would love to be able to take notes and find the gems but since I mostly listen during work and when the kids and I are eating it is hard to keep notes but when I was younger and could find a gem it was a great feeling, so keep diggin man! I will enjoy the 84 show

Wisconsindead,if you have not explored the Nov/Dec 72' shows you are in for a treat.The 10 shows from November (minus the 11/12 show which is unlistenable due to poor recording) yield extraordinary versions of the Other One 11/17,Dark Star 11/26,Bird Song 11/19 and 11/22 and 7 versions of Playin' of which 11/15 and 11/18 are as good as it gets.The 5 shows in December are all stellar and to my ear we get the band at it's peak.12/10 Playin' and an all-time Other One,12/11 He's Gone and Dark Star,12/12 Bird Song,Other One,12/15 Playin',He's Gone and Dark Star and 12/31 Playin',Truckin'-> Other One.The less adventurous music in the catalog was also well represented over 14 aforementioned shows with Bobby doing a fine job on his country selections ,Black Throated Wind,a couple of good takes on Around&Around,Jack Straw 11/19,Sugar Mag 11/26.Jerry also contributed two really nice Stella Blue's,two hot China Cat's 12/10 and 12/15,two good Don't Ease Me In 11/17 and11/26,two fine Tenn.Jed's 12/12 and 12/15,and a good Brown Eyed 11/13,Cumberland 11/17,Goin' Down 12/12,I Know you Rider 12/10 and Casey Jones 12/31.

wow, thanks guy! or gal?

and yes i am no stranger (feel like) to fall 72. I love the 12-31 too > drums and bass > jam > too > dew. The addition of crosby adds a bobby like element that is awesome.

I will look into those versions as they are likely straight down my alley. I appreciate it and look forward to jammin out.

Are you a dew fan? I LOVE morning dew and fall 72 has some of THE best ever, and a lot of them. (9-17, 9-21, 10-18, 10-21, 11-19, 12-31)

Jerlouvis forgot to mention the amazing Dark Star>Dew from 11/13/72 which is a must-hear.

I'm not the biggest fan of the 11/19/72 Star, but I do like the 11/26 version which is more in the 'scary' vein and has my favorite Feelin' Groovy jam.

I really like Morning Dew,but I find that it lets me down most of the time,they tend to hack it up either vocally or musically or both.I looked through my notes and didn't find an extraordinary version from 72',but I did like a few of the versions you mentioned and the strange,mournful 11/13 version LIA mentioned,and I must say the 10 minute jam leading to the 5/26 version is some of the bands most beautiful playing ever.I found 2 versions from 73' I thought were outstanding examples,2/28 and 9/11,and 4 from 74',2/24,3/23,6/18 and 9/10.

I know this is a little out of the temporal realm y'all are discussing but I can't resist plugging one of my favorite Dews

It was this song that opened my ears to why some people ONLY like Primal Dead. No matter how well they played in the 80's or 90's, they never SOUNDED like 1967. And, that's something that some people just cannot abide.

Right, I think part of my fall 72 bias is due to my lack of pigpen enthusiasm and love for really drawn out awesome jams (not to mention the increased length of playin). Someday i will delve into the europe stuff harder. FOr now i will endulge in my fall 72 obsession. like 1972-10-18. UGH! i love it. I also love 1972-10-21 because the playing is excellent and phil is up triple in the mix, make your whole house shake. Or DP 23 other one. God there are so many GD goodies out there.

I think Europe because of my Pig bias! Hahaha, but you can't really go wrong with anything from 72. Enjoy the fall tour I will be into that by mid-summer and jerlouvis has some great suggestions below and check out the responses to Cliff Hucker's post, there are some very talented posters here who have some great insight so check out what they suggest and enjoy your Fall 72 obsession! I checked out a little of Mr. Miller's sbd of 3/31/84, very good 80's minglewood, look forward to givin the whole show a listen!
